Vintage Window

I am not sure just where this window falls into the scheme of things in the mixed media artistic world but I just refer to it as trash to treasure.  I found the
vintage window in one of our antique consignment stores and it was just the color I needed ... chippy and ready to use.  The hand crocheted piece I hunted for and found on Ebay.  It's original use was on the back of a vintage couch to protect the upholstery as heads lay to rest on it but makes a perfect little curtain topper.     I purchased a short curtain rod which I attached to the window and this hangs in my spare bedroom over the bed....kinda' acting like a headboard which the bed doesn't have.  There are no windows in the room so this acts as a faux window accent. 

I love taking things that are something and using in a totally different context.....

About Me

My photo
Bend, OR, United States
I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. Thanks for stopping by....
